In 2018, the Linn Area Photo Club officially made Greater Cedar Rapids Help-Portrait a part of the Club. The reasons for that were, our Club members are great supporters of the event, because it is “photography” and its a great way for our Club to give back to the community!
The 2019 event is scheduled for December 7th this year.
We need volunteers!
Studio Photographers – Experienced studio photographer, whose role will be to take portrait images of family groups in size of one to twenty. Has portable studio equipment (lights, backdrops, props, etc.) and comfortable shooting with thier equipment. We need 9 photographers!
Assistant Photographers – Each photographer is assigned an assistant. These are the people who can organize groups, help with posing, and get kids attention, able to move lighting, and assist in anything the photographers need. Great way to learn how to be a studio photographer for the following year’s event.
Photo Editors – Are you experienced in Photoshop or Lightroom! These are the behind-the-scene people who are willing to bring their own laptops with their own personal photo editing software. You will be editing (white balance, fixing small blemishes, brightness & contrast, cropping, etc) and saving photos to a USB drive. We need twice as many editors (48 in 2019) as photographers. We are also need specialized editing positions that will backup all images, send files to the printers and verify USB drive content. We need 25 editors!
Family Guide – These volunteers escort the family through the whole process. They pick up a new family from the registration table, makes sure all the paperwork is completed and turned in, escorts the family to the hair/makeup area (if desired), then to a photographer and stays with the family until they get back to the waiting area; all the while collecting their stories. We need 35 family guides!
General Volunteers – We also need many other general volunteers from framers, translators, hospitality, etc.
Volunteer your co-workers, neighbors, friends, family, etc. Do you know any experienced studio photographers? Recommend us and ask that they help us out. Although it is a part of Linn Area Photo Club, it is a community event and we are glad to have anyone volunteer.
